U.S. police officer suspended for the arrest of two six-year-olds

The U.S. police officer was arrested after arresting two six-year-olds at a college in Orlando, Florida.

The police officer handcuffed one of them after tossing a tantrum and punching a teacher, the girl’s grandma informed the U.S. press.

The policeman, Dennis Turner, was disqualified because the authorities said he did not get the required permission to house the two of them.

Prosecutors claim they will remove the arrests from their files.

He loaded both kids with a bad battery. Little has been created public about the other arrest-which was in a distinct event.

“Children will not be sued, and just as importantly, I am looking at alternatives that could undo legal harm, such as removing arrests from children’s documents,” Aramis Ayala said at a news conference.

Police Chief declaration

Police Chief Orlando Rolón said in a declaration: “As a grandparent of three kids under the age of 11, this is very important to me. They commit our department to providing skilled and courteous services.”

The police recognized neither kid, but one child’s grandmas said she had a sleep apnoea that had led to her behavior.

Meralyn Kirkland informed NBC that when she went to get her niece out of jail, “they informed us we had to wait a few minutes because she was being fingerprinted, and when she said she had fingerprinted, I realized like a ton of rocks.”

“No six-year-old kid should be prepared to inform someone that they had handcuffs on them and that they were riding in the rear of a police car and brought to a youth center to get their fingerprints, a mug shot.”

According to Orlando Police, they released Mr Turner from the police force but worked as a safety officer in the college as part of the local reserve department.

Schools have increasingly switched to hire part-time policemen since a sequence of lethal classroom shooting assaults, such as the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School and the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. According to AFP, 46% of U.S. colleges have an agent on campus for at least one day of each week.
